    About me

    I am a 22-year-old from London. I graduated from Ravensbourne University in 2018, where I studied Digital TV Production for three years and achieved a 2:1 grade. I am currently looking for the next chapter in

    what has already been an exciting early career in digital media. I am interested in a documentary making, comedy, music videos and various other genres of media.

    I also enjoy art, style and design.

    I consider myself good with people. I am a team player with a great work ethic. Due to the skills learnt through university and my career I am able to fill multiple roles with different kinds of people. I enjoy brainstorming ideas and working creatively with others to create brilliant content. Many have described me as mature for my age, but I’m also able to have a laugh and enjoy myself.

    At university, I gained some fantastic experience. I was chosen to work on filming assignments on behalf of the university in both Uganda and China, where I worked as a camera operator, editor and producer. During my time at university I was also chosen to pitch a show idea to Dom Bird at Channel 4 named ‘Viral’.

    Between 2018 and 2019 I worked with a production company in London called UFF where I was given the opportunity to write, produce and direct my first documentary (which can be found on Amazon Fire) as well as a weekly comedy show which averaged around 12k views per week on YouTube. During my time there I also presented to camera during the 2018 World Cup, interviewing football fans. This was broadcast on London Live. I have also worked on many shoots as a production runner with companies such as BT Sport, CC-Lab and Luminaries Ltd plus advertising shoots for agencies.

    I am currently working for IMG. My role is to make sure live sports broadcasting from all over the world

    is streamed successfully to millions of viewers. I liaise with producers on every continent and I am often responsible for major pay-per-view events running smoothly. Unfortunately, this means I am fixed at a desk and this lacks a creative aspect I enjoy. I guess you could say I miss working ‘in the field’. I’ve also just started recording my own Podcast show.

    I can bring a good, positive attitude to any shoot or office and I love meeting new people. I have a passion for a wide range of creative platforms. I enjoy pitching new ideas and have an extensive knowledge of roles on set. I can think outside of the box and approach any job with a professional and efficient manner.

    Kind regards

    Tom Parkin
